Bend It Like Peckham

Posted by cathedralofshit on July 2, 2010

Cathedral of Shit favourite Hannah Barry seems to have come up with a solution to some of her previous failed attempts at showing good art – she’s got other people to do it for her.
A ‘committee’ comprised of the likes of Gasworks Anna Colin, Art Review’s Oliver Basciano, Guggenheim curator Katherine Brinson and Anita’s Lizzie Neilson all suggested works for the car park. Teeming with millions of Camberwell College students were a handful of art usuals – we saw Matthew Slotover looking a little bewildered, The Outset gang, artists Anthea Hamilton, Matthew Darbyshire, Nicholas Byrne, and George Henry-Longly (all in the show) Frieze’s Sarah McCrory, Mute’s Dean Kissick, Ash Lange from Herald Street, Martin Creed (who also performed) and AR’s Mark Rappolt.

It was noted that, having four women artists in the exhibition meant a 1000% rise in the number of women in a Hannah Barry project. Well Done Hannah! Let’s keep it up when you move to your new gallery home in the West End shall we? Note – does anyone know any more about this – will it be a second gallery or will she be leaving Peckham behind? Despite her gender-blindness, it was a fun evening.

CoS didn’t make the party which we heard was a sweaty and fun affair, but we did make local bar, Bar Story, where we sat and regaled students with made-up tales about that time we were sick in an umbrella stand at Marc Quinn’s house.

Banana Balls

Posted by cathedralofshit on January 11, 2010

Just as power cuts and cold snaps result in an explosion in the birth rate nine months later so, it seems, so do downturns in the art market. Staying in and drinking cocoa rather than going out and indulging works wonders for the sperm-count.

Congratulations to Darren Flook and Christabel Stewart, Ryan Gander and Rebecca May Marston, Rodolphe von Hofmannsthal, David Kordansky, Matthew Darbyshire, Emily Pethick and Nils Norman, Catherine Wood (number two on the way), Jimi Lee and (!)Stuart Comer who have either spawned recently or are about to.
Stuart Comer’s baby mother is said to be the heir to a banana billionaire’s billions.
